Ack, curse my abnormally dark monitor! I hate how what looks good on my computer actually looks like crap on the majority of monitors. Bleck. Anyway, I've been experimenting, so a lot of these are much darker than my usual icons, to compensate for my computer's darker moniter. I think I've finally found a colouring for P&P 1995 that I actually like. Score. This batch includes North & South, Casanova and Ron/Hermoine as requested in the suggestion post. Hope you like! (Lots of kissy.) Heh.

I wandered across to see the P&P icons and ended up saving the Casanova icons - I never know what I'll end up saving but I always enjoy coming over to see!

I liked the greyscale icons as a contrast to the colour; they were nicely nuanced and concealed and revealed just as much as the colour with regard to detaiil as might the colour ones have done.

Icon 101 stood out because I didn't like the way that 'snippet of text' (I can't thik of a way to describe that effect other than that) just seems to ... hang there. Coming off the corners like 79 or 82 is cool or even at the bottom like 103, 105 & 109, but, that just didn't seem to be part of the icon in 101 and looked as though it was just stuck in there to look cool; I know that wasn't the intent but, that's how it seems.

Overall, though, I enjoyed seeing these. The darker lighting seemed to fit the subjects and evoked a mood that was shadowed and ... darker, honestly. It was different and well done.

*laughs*

It was for a contest, and the challenge was for all versions of Elizabeth Bennett specifically. I don't even like that adaptation! ;)
themurcurytree on July 23rd, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC)
lol, i like it okay. larry was hot, as per usual, but greer garson was so miscast.
Liznaybob on July 23rd, 2007 07:13 pm (UTC)
lol! That's funny, because I thought if anyone was wrong for their role, it was Olivier. That version of P&P turned Mr. Darcy into this lovey-dovey pretty boy and it was just so...wrong. (No offence meant to you, I know you like him.) But anyway, despite its terrible distortion of the original story, I still enjoyed it more than the 2005 version. (That one nearly put me to sleep!) ;)
